Performance(s) of the week: Dick Haynes and Katie Crawford- when Dick first came to Paulina Fitness, he did a workout with knees to elbows. With his best effort, he could get his knees about hip high for that workout. After practice, mobility work, and increased strength, Dick was able to get 163 reps on WOD 3, and an impressive 36 toes to bar. Katie came last Wednesday night, having never done a legitimate TTB. After an hour of practice, she was able to get her first TTB. But she was not satisfied with just getting one; she pressed on and started to string 2 and 3 together. Once WOD 3 was all said and done, Katie had successfully done 14 legit TTB. Congrats to both these athletes for their hard work and dedicated practice!

CrossFit Redondo Team Rank: 90th in Southern Cal, 1098th Worldwide

This is impressive considering many of the boxes both in front of and behind us in rank are much older boxes than us. Not bad for an 8-month old gym!
